A dentist thrown into a Dubai jail with her four-year-old daughter for drinking a glass of wine on a flight from London today tearfully told how she is desperate to return home and be re-united with her family.

Dr Ellie Holman, 44, faces being held in the Arab state for a year after being arrested for consuming alcohol provided by Emirates Airline on the eight hour flight from London.

She told MailOnline she cant wait to home in Kent and see her three young children, including daughter Bibi, who spent three days with her in an airport jail after her arrest.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, she said: 'I just want to go home. I miss my friends and I miss my family, especially my Bibi.

'Being in prison terrified me as a grownup, I can't imagine how this must have affected her. I just want to be home and safe with Gary and all my children.'

First....

Quote:
 
Dr Holmon's nightmare began after she stepped off an Emirates Airlines flight from London to Dubai on July 13th.

During the flight she was served a glass of red wine with her meal. Alcohol is served as standard practice on Emirates Airlines on flights from the UK to Dubai.

On arrival Dr Holman was quizzed by an immigration official over her visa who told her it was not valid.


And then .....

Quote:
 
The terrified pair arrived at a police building where she says a man in a dirty white lab coat said he was going to take a sample of her blood as evidence she had drunk alcohol.

She was told the results showed 0.04% of alcohol in her blood – a reading far below the UK drink drive limit.


So, lemme see if I got this right....

A woman orders a glass of red wine with her meal on a flight to Dubai on Emirates Airlines

And then she was JAILED for having alcohol in her system at the immigration check point.....?

What? Huh? Ya gotta be kidding me.

This Dubai place, and its so-called justice system, sounds more and more like the UK...! (read: Tommy Robinson)

They are both lucky, under Muslim law women are usually raped, convicted in a court of law then stoned to death. Muslims are becoming soft. Mohammad would not be happy.

He must. He doesn't know a Christian has a better chance of getting stoned to death at liberal American university that they do in a ISIS training camp.

If you sleep with dogs you are likely to awake with fleas.

Why would any western female visit a country like Dubai? It boggles the mind.
People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm.

Surely no US allies would display such human rights violations.

The Saudi transaction is just one example of nations and companies that had donated to the Clinton Foundation seeing an increase in arms deals while Hillary Clinton oversaw the State Department. IBT found that between October 2010 and September 2012, State approved $165 billion in commercial arms sales to 20 nations that had donated to the foundation, plus another $151 billion worth of Pentagon-brokered arms deals to 16 of those countries—a 143 percent increase over the same time frame under the Bush Administration. The sales boosted the military power of authoritarian regimes such as Qatar, Algeria, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman, which, like Saudi Arabia, had been criticized by the department for human rights abuses.

Dubai is a playground for the rich, and the human rights stuff is out of sight out of mind, as Hollywood shows by
shooting a Mission Impossible movie there.

Yes it is and a disturbing one. We (The West) have too many alliances with questionable nations and their dubious values... and I am not just referring to Denmark ;) - H

A rare happy ending for women in the Middle East, and yet another reminder why
most people will never go there, including myself. Although, the pyramids are on my bucket list, so if things ever calm back down there, Egypt--here I come.....

Yes, but tens of thousands of people are forced through Dubai because Emirates Airlines has made it the most significant transit hub between Europe and Asia. If you fly Emirates, you're probably gonna wind-up in Dubai.

Those are all countries considered allies and with which we have been selling arms for decades and by both Democrat and Republican administrations. No real cause and effect there.

Why the hell would women from Westernized nations go there is puzzling. Animals have more rights than women.
